Forum: etree Subject: wd2008-09-26 (32824979) - stalled item creation?

A few days ago, I started to create a new concert at http://www.archive.org/details/wd2008-09-26.lapel.flacf (item id # 32824979).

I got interrupted, didn't complete the download, then realized I made a few mistakes, and ended up not being able to get back to it till now.

I'm not sure how to resume and complete the item creation now, though. The above link serves up an 'item not found' error.

What do I need to do to move ahead/finish up? Should I restart the item creation? I tried ftp'ing the files up, and it seemed to be successful, but I think I need to add some information (an .ffp.txt, for example).

Any direction/information would be much appreciated. Thanks!

try this (not sure it's gonna work)

first:
http://www.archive.org/checkout/wd2008-09-26.lapel.flacf
then upload files.
then:
http://www.archive.org/checkin/wd2008-09-26.lapel.flacf

I get 'no XML, go to item detail' then on the item detail page, I get 'item cannot be found'.

So when I click to check it back in, I get 'no record of item being checked out'.

Thanks, though--that's sure more than I knew to do!

The item looks hosed to me. Occasionally this happens when nothing is uploaded - the item eventually checks itself back in and then the system can't create an xml file because there's nothing to catalog. You'll have to create a new identifier (I'd suggest one ending with .flac16 instead of .flacf) and upload there instead. Sorry...

No problem. I'll give it a go--just starting over is probably easier than trying to correct all the mistakes I've made anyway.

Anything I/we need to do to make sure the original item doesn't clutter things up? Mark for deletion somehow?

Thanks!

Thanks for the help, everybody!
